Virginia State University College of Agriculture and Virginia Cooperative Extension (VCE) will hold the “Virginia Berry School” March 12 to 13 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at VSU Randolph Farm Pavilion at 4415 River Road, Petersburg.
The berry industry continues to grow and be very dynamic due to high consumer demand for berry crops, resulting from their considerable health benefits.
Good market opportunities exist for Virginia growers who are thinking about expanding and/or starting to grow berry crops. However, growing a berry crop is intensive, requires labor, and having a management plan in place is a must.
This two-day event will include both classroom and field hands-on teaching on how to grow and market blackberry and blueberry crops. Registration includes lunch on both days.
A limited number of rooms are available for the participants who need hotel accommodations. Rooms must be reserved by Feb. 17.
